Fodor's Review

Bodrum's handmade leather sandals are renowned. The late Ali Güven, who once made sandals for Mick Jagger, was the most trusted and well-established of the cobblers; his workshop continues to put out lightweight designs that are made from specially worked leather, very comfortable for the Mediterranean summer, and aesthetically pleasing as well.

Never received my sandals

I ordered sandals from Ali Guven, per Fodor's recommendation, when I was in Bodrum in May of 2007. He only took cash ($300), hardly spoke English, provided no receipt when I asked for one, and said I'd receive them in 1-2 months. I was skeptical and wouldn't have bought them had he not come highly recommended by Fodor's. It has been well over one year and I have yet to receive them. I have called repeatedly and no one answers his phone and he

hasn't responded to any emails. Needless to say, I would not recommend Ali Guven.
